Marked increases in neuronal nitric oxide synthase (nNOS) mRNA and NADPH-diaphorase histostaining in adrenal cortex after immobilization stress in rats.


The changes of neuronal nitric oxide synthase (nNOS) mRNA expression in the rat adrenal gland following immobilization-induced stress were examined by the in situ hybridization technique. To introduce immobilization stress, the animals were wrapped with flexible wire gauze for 6 h. In the adrenal medulla and cortex, signals for nNOS mRNA were detected. In… (More)
